Powermeters have revolutionised how professional cyclist strain. We took a look at the range of products used by the pro teams; SRM, Stages, Pioneer and Quarq and spoke to some of the people at the cutting edge of powermeters and how they're used.
We spoke to Tim Kerrison at Team Sky - the man believed by many to have turned Wiggins and Froome into Grand Tour winners, about how the Team Sky's new work Stages Powermeters has affected their training approach. We also met Darren Harper of Pioneer powermeters. Used by Belkin Pro Cycling, Pioneer are one of the newcomers to the market.
Do you use a powermeter? Has it changed the way you train? Maybe you think their use in professional cycling should be outlawed? Comment and let us know.
